San Carlos - eating

Sunday morning and all is quiet around here. Sun is out and sky is clear – going to be up in the low 80s today. Yesterday was cloudy but humid all day.
Back to our busy day with the Pearl Farm and Jail.
After leaving the Jail we went to the dry dock to visit with Phil who has his boat out of the water doing lots and lots of work on it. He is living on it while he works on it. Phil's blog 
I was wandering around checking out things when I saw this boat – I think it needs a little too much work to be useful again.
Going back through the downtown of Guaymas this elderly lady decided to cross the street in front of us. The first thing we saw were the red socks and shoes. Just like a stop light. She made it.
Then back in San Carlos we went to eat at La Palapa Griega restaurant right on the beach. Very nice view.

And the food was very good. Three of us had fish and chips and Joe had “kind of” scallops. Looked very good. But I wondered if they were the little oyster animals the Pearl Farm sells to the local restaurants.
Yesterday we were walking around the area – this store is right in front of the campground. Sells all kinds of pretty stuff but I like the stairs going down into it. Broken pieces of tile, pottery etc.
And a Spa that offers everything.
Later on we went to a “Shrimp Festival” just up the road a piece. It was kind of like “A taste of San Carlos”  If you wanted to eat you had to buy tickets for the food. Lots of people in line. 
Several vendors selling the usual things. Rugs, blankets, trinkets, purses and paintings. 
 I like these raindeer made out of grasses.
Some of the food vendors.  

This salad smelled really good.
And of course the "Queen" of the festival. Love the high heels. 
Then home for the rest of the day. Bill has been trying to get his music playlists to work. And I've been reading and knitting. 
Not sure what we'll be doing today.
